4.28/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a standard shaker pint glass at St Stan's/Hero's in Modesto, CA.

Pours a very nice golden/copper hue topped with a white ½ inch tall head. The retention was of a decent time period as I took some notes. The lace left behind was also nice. Lace was left in the form of several cascading rings coinciding with the previous level of the beer after each pull.

Initial nose is of grapefruit and pine ops with bready, doughy malts briefly surfacing to only to fall back and allow more grapefruit to come through. Nice but not very complex.

Pine hop bitterness and flavor hit 1st which is quickly followed by an onslaught of citrus flavors, with grapefruit in the forefront, some tangerine and lemon come through too. There is a big bitter bite that fights of the initial attempts of the biscuit and bready malts to come through. As my palate acclimated to the bitterness, some biscuit and bread notes did begin to shine through. The finish is a return of the grapefruit with some added bitterness that is reminiscent of the rind of grapefruit with some white ptih attached. The bitterness lingers quite a while after each sip. Not balanced by any stretch but this is expected from a west coast style IPA of which this is a fine example

The mouth feel is quite creamy with a medium body. Carbonation is vibrant but doesn't overpower the creaminess.

This is a very fine beverage of which I could have easily down several more than the two I had, but I had to drive.

3.36/5  rDev -13%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice crystal clear honey amber hue with a good half a finger head that faded to leave a thin light blanket and halo.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, caramel, acid, light metal, herbal, older hops. Not much going for the nose.

T - Taste is much more malt heavy than it should. Caramel, sweeter malts, faint faint bitter grapefruit, lightly vegetative. Definitely past its prime.

M - Mouthfeel isnt bad, lighter, smooth.

O - Overall, clearly not the freshest bottle. Bet this would have been much tastier fresh.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: Hazy orange with a white head.

S: Orange, maybe some peach and mango in the nose.

T: Malt, orange, some tangerine, and pine.

M: Medium bodied and smoothish.

O: Delicious, though not quite the beast Son of Wrath is. Definitely worth a try. I think this beer is way underrated.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body.
The aroma is lots of citrus: orange, mandarin, lemon and grapefruit.
The taste starts with a strong pine bitterness, moderated by the malt, but still finishes with a dry pine bitterness. Good balance.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A delicious IPA.
